Fantastic school but their policy on bullying really is horrible. My grandson has been bullied for 3 year's report after report meeting with mother of the bully got my daughter nowhere. They refuse to do anything to the bully and has 5-year-old my daughter that my grandson provokes his bully. His lunch tray has been knocked out of my grandsons hands and told that he don't need to eat because he's a fat ass. The bully has even gone as far as to threaten my grandson with death. The bully told my grandson that he was going to kill him. There's nothing being done the one that my daughter has talked to refuses to deal with the bull's mother because of the way she presents herself. So now my daughter has no support from the school at all so she has no other choice to put my grandson into a different school. I believe that the bully should be punished and kicked out of the school period. It's not fair.
